Magazine show off!

A while ago, I made a trip to a Pottery Barn Outlet, I bought three picture ledges. They were not on my shopping list, but with a $9.97 price tag each, I couldn’t pass it up. All of the ledges weren’t the same price, so I negotiated with the lowest price tag and they said yes. So if you have any chance to go to any outlets, ask them if they can markdown the price. Especially when you find some defects but ┬ástill want them, then show them the defects and ask if you can have them at 30% off from the sale price and then they will most likely come back 15~20% off and you will say the middle of the numbers. Deal!!

Anyway, they were abandoned for weeks, not knowing that where will be a permanent place for them to live. I finally decided to give them a purposed life, so here they are.

Here's the place.

I'm not planning to place heavy stuff on the ledge, so I used two screw nails for each ledge.

It was a little tricky to hang on to three hangers at the same time, but wasn't that hard.
